Week 1 The Story of Bread

The Story of Bread always starts with the ingredients. I have been enjoying using fresh ground whole grain flour! Other then that there is not a whole lot that goes into bread. 
 The yeast is one of the most important parts of the bread. You have to be carful not to kill it too soon with really hot water but the warmer the water the faster it grows. The neat thing about yeast is it is actually all around in the air and you don't really have to add it to the bread because it car take it from the air.


 After mixing the ingredients and kneeding it for awhile it has to rise...
 and rose some more...
 and rise some more although I forgot to make a photograph of it fully risen to the top of the bowl. After it is nice and huge it has to be punched down and formed into loves. My favorite loves are round cottage ones verses the standard bread-pan loves. I also like painting the loves with egg to make a nice golden crust. Then it has to rise some more...


 And finally after it has risen big and fluffy it gets baked.
 And finally eaten, yum yum!

And that is my first weekly challenge. I hope you enjoyed it and the photographs.

Week 50 Snow

This week I had some fun homework assignments photographed some playing Xbox and exploring in the snow. 








Week 27 FGC!

I have so many favorite photographs from this week. I was at FGC(Friends General Conference) so there was loads to photograph and I was in a photography workshop so I was even more photographically active then usual. I worked very hard to slim down the hundreds to just these few very best. The last two you need to know a little bit about the Quaker activities durring FGC. The first of the two is of wink which is a wrestling and kissing game. I wont go into the full description here but check out this article that talkes about it, http://quaker.wikia.com/wiki/Wink_(game). I will say however that it can be extremely photographic but is a good challenge to photograph successfully. The very last photograph is of one of the AYFers(Adult Young Friends) participating in the ritual celebration feast at the end of the week. It is done in worshipful silence and you can NOT feed yourself but have to be fed by others, and you get to feed others :) Loads of fun and a great way to wrap up a bondin…

Week 24 Farm Work

This week there was lots of work to do on Round River Farm. The biggest task being cleaning all the manure out of the barn and chicken coop. It made a huge pile. There were also lots of vegetables as is to be expected. I also took a walk to the nearby lake and saw some beautiful flowers.
